Comprehensive Cancer Wellness Program

The Comprehensive Cancer Wellness Program serves patients with cancer in active treatment or recovery. Our program follows national protocols and evidence based research. This research supports the idea that exercise and nutritional interventions significantly reduce cancer treatment symptoms and improve remission rates. We receive referrals from most major medical centers in the region and the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults.

Research shows that exercise can lead to the following:

  • Reduced fatigue and increased energy levels
  • Greater endurance for activities of daily living
  • Strengthened immune system and decreased risk of infections
  • Reduction of pain and an increased pain tolerance
  • Decreased anxiety and depression
  • Improved tolerance to chemotherapy
  • Enhanced self-image and sense of control


Education about nutrition and stress management is offered through a registered dietician and the Towson University Nursing Department. Additional support is available through regularly scheduled interaction and group peer meetings for program members.
